Well, they are normally too busy to set fire to people, so it's clearly a shock.

"We are busy people around here - it's not often something like this happens."

Presumably this sort of thing normally happens in areas where people have more leisure time.

Weird story, that. If I was looking for a nanny job, I'd think twice before applying for that one.

...(adjusts monocle & Jacob-Rees-Mogg collar)... I believe it to be a variety of air-headed-female, similar in class to Cook & Nanny, aka as brainless bimbos.

Well the "Boyzone" is a talentless troup of dancers/"singers", and therefore a "Boyzone-ex" is a female appendage/groupie formerly associated with a member of Boyzone.

If only it was that simple.

They should always send people the bill, by default, and I envisage a "hikers and sailors insurance policy", which for a modest sum would pay out in the event that you need to be rescued, whether from a mountain, cave, cliff, river, lake, or the coast/sea.

I have never understood why the entire population funds the bill for rescuing people who get their kicks from relatively risky activities. That is especially so, now that coast guard air rescue has been carved out of the RAF where at least helicopter rescues arguably had some practice/ training benefit for RAF pilots and crews.
